Mindfulness Courses

Introduction to Mindfulness

What is mindfulness? There is a definition but ultimately it is something that we need to experience first-hand, it is not outside of ourselves. Introduction to Mindfulness is a one hour interactive seminar.  Through a combination of presentation and guided practices participants are able to experience mindfulness for themselves.

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction-MBSR-is an intensive 8-week, 9-session training in mindfulness. Groups meet weekly for 2.5 hours and for an all-day session between weeks six and seven. Guided instruction in various mindfulness practices is provided, including sitting and walking meditation, the body scan, gentle yoga, and other guided meditations.
